I'm putting together the conference that I want to go to!

Organiser, Kris Jeary

It's all done now but you can watch the review video.

I have organised this web conference to be my ideal event, hopefully there are enough other people out there that share my vision.

A full day of talks on the Saturday but your ticket also gets you 2 nights of camping in a beautiful woodland location, Badgells Wood in Kent.

My favourite part of conferences is chatting with the speakers and attendees after the event, unfortunately this is often in a busy pub where you struggle to hear, this event brings the chat to the campfire.

Book your Ticket

Badgells Wood in Kent - not a stock photo, it is the real place :)
Showers & Toilets - All mod' cons'

The main day is Saturday 12th September but your ticket gets you more than that!

You can pitch your tent from midday on Friday and you'll be good until midday on the Sunday.

The Friday night will be a great time to meet and chat with your fellow attendees and we also have a special edition of the Three Devs and a Maybe Podcast being recorded in front of a live studio (forest) audience.

The main day will see 5 main speakers plus 5 lightning talks from some new faces. Talk subjects will be varied but all related to working on the web and offer inspiration as well as instruction.

After the talks there will be a fish 'n' chips van visiting (all included in your ticket price). The venue has everything you need, including a big pile of camp fire wood. There is a small town a short drive (or longer walk) away so you can stock up on anything you may have forgotten. Also nearby is a small brewery called Kent Brewery, pre-ordering is essential but they do an awesome range for collection.

Just don't forget your tent & sleeping bag!

Book your Ticket

The event is limited to 50 tickets, you also get 2 nights camping in the beautiful woodland setting.

The lightening talk spots are on a first-come-first-served basis and for attendees only. If you have something you'd like to share please let me know and you can reserve your 10 minutes in the spotlight :)

"Finding Your Mojo"

More and more recently I've seen creative people struggling with motivation feeling like they're stuck in a rut. It's easy to lose perspective and become stagnant but the important thing is to spot the signs and make positive changes. In this talk I aim to uncover what your mojo is, how to get it back and how to keep it!

"An Introduction to Open Data"

In a world where many of our digital spaces are becoming more closed than ever, open data is a concept that is rapidly on the rise.

In this talk we'll explore what open data is (and what it isn't), and why we should care about it. We'll look at how you can introduce it into your projects with regards to practical publication and consumption, and discuss some useful tools and reference points.

Open data isn't just dry and technical - it gives us great scope to be creative, and throughout this talk we'll go through some of the amazing things that it has been used for globally in the hope that it will inspire you to create something amazing yourself.

"Working with the World"

I want to show you the inner workings of a company building an open source product. How do we keep up with what's going on – not just with fellow employees, but with everyone else around the world who likes to work on that product? Why are we so transparent and what does that transparency mean? Is a remote company really any different to an office-based company? Let's find out.

The Quick Version

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded t-shirts.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.

Treat everyone's tent as their home, do not go into any tent without the express (not what you may think is implied) permission of its owner. This behaviour will see you expelled from the event and reported to the Police.

If the code is followed we will all have an amazing time!
